"Massive thank you"OCTOBER, 2023
I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and all the castle staff for the most amazing wedding. It was everything and so much more than we could have hoped for. The castle was perfect, the food by Seth’s Kitchen was delicious and everyone had a blast so all in all, a very successful wedding! We had the most fantastic time and will remember it forever. All our guests were amazed by Walton Castle and how beautiful it is.Finally, a big thank you for all your hard work in the months leading up to the day.
Amazing Venue JUNE, 2023
What an amazing venue, what amazing staff and our wedding day was even more amazing. Right from day one, communication between ourselves and Margarita and Mandy was spot on, any worries or questions we had we just rang margarita and she gave us answers straight away , we were able to visit the castle on numerous occasions and sit down and discuss our big upcoming day with them both and felt completely reassured before we left. Nothing was a problem for Margareta we were even allowed our beloved dogs at the castle so they could be involved in our special day. We stayed for 3 nghts and had a fantastic time. The wedding went fantastically and all our guests were overwhelmed by the beauty of the castle and grounds. Neil was such a brilliant help , he helped us unload our car on day one and even helped carry our things up to the bridal suit at the top of the castle , showed us everything we needed to know like light switches, keys etc. Thank you so much Neil. Matt and Emma on the bar exceeded themselves by being so friendly , helpful and so entertaining, all our guests loved them and nothing was a problem to them even the nagging children for more drinks, Matt and Emma you are stars and a credit to the castle.Even our tortoise had great fun walking around the grounds. We had the best time ever and did not want to leave, to top off the experience as we left a baby deer was walking up the drive, Walton castle is full of beauty inside and out. Thank you Margarita so much and thank you Mandy xx
"Everything we wanted"MAY, 2023
From the minute we walked into the castle, we knew this venue was for us. It is in such a magical, peaceful and serene spot and has been renovated by Margarita and her team to a fabulous standard.One big selling point for us was Margarita said from the start that you pay to hire the castle and then it's up to you to do whatever you want for your big day. She offered us her list of suppliers and recommended to get wedding insurance but, also made it clear if we wanted to use our own suppliers we could. It meant we had the freedom to be as creative as we wanted.In the build up to the day, you can have as many meetings/phonecalls with Margarita or Mandy as you need/want. Both Margarita and Mandy were always very willing to allow us to pay a visit for whatever reason.On the weekend itself, we were greeted by Neil the caretaker who kindly showed us round the castle, helped us set up our party tent we had purchased for the day, and even helped carry our bags into the castle. He didn't leave until he checked we were OK with everything. The day itself was even better than we could ever imagine. All the companies we had sourced and hired for the day were great and Matt, the bar manager was simply fabulous. So many guests commented afterwards on how nice, lively and bubbly he was. Matt was even messaging and calling us the week before to check in and see how we were doing. The pool and the garden games were great. It meant that the day after the wedding we could do a little pool party and bbq with our close friends and family. The children loved the pool. None of us ever wanted the weekend to end, it was absolutely perfect from start to finish. We ensured the place was spotless before we left and the security deposit was returned no problem what's so ever. Margarita, Mandy, Neil and Matt were a fab team and we appreciated all their help with the big day. If you want a wedding where you have freedom to make the day what you want, this is the perfect place for you. Just wish we could have our time and day again.
Fairytale weddingAUGUST, 2021
Our wedding could not have been more amazing at Walton Castle - a true fairytale. Planning our wedding with Walton Castle couldn't have been simpler. They are always on hand to answer any questions, and also provided us with some excellent advice and ideas when we weren't sure of something. They provided us with excellent suppliers - our food was second to none, my flowers were to die for, and our marquee was just perfect too - all recommended by the venue! They couldn't help enough. Like many, we had to postpone our wedding from last year due to the pandemic. Unfortunately, our 'perfect date' wasn't available for the next year however they managed to cater for us and we just couldn't thank them enough. On the day there was always someone available to help - we had an unexpected change in weather (which ended up not affecting us after all!) but they were right there to help with moving things around should we have needed to. I had absolute no stress as a Bride organising my wedding here - wish we could do it all over again! Can't recommend this place enough! Thank you Walton Castle! Laura & Chris x
